Ephesians 5:5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. [The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors, (sexual immoraity, impurity, covetousness), that exclude any and all from the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear. Those who are immoral have no inheritance in God's kingdom." Paul just told us that covetousness is idolatry. So whatever we want or value, we worship; and how one spends their free time defines their devotion. From the Word of the Lord within: "you must learn to hate everything you worship."]

 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.1 [Paul pleas with you not to be deceived by anyone who tells you differently, (e.g., that your sexual immorality, impurity, and covetousness is excused by believing in Jesus), which is what the preachers of Christianity do; even the demons believe in Jesus. It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "The way is clear: listen and obey."]

1 Here is more of the fine print of the contract listing exclusions, even for so-called believers: no sexual immorality, uncleanness, covetousness, filthiness, foolish talking, or jesting; for you can be sure that no sexually immoral, impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear." The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors that exclude anyone from the kingdom of Christ and God, along with a plea to not be deceived by anyone who tells them differently: "let no man deceive you with vain words," which is exactly what the millions of preachers in Christianity constantly do, deceiving their billions into being comfortable with their perpetual sinning because their itching ears have believed the lie that their belief in Jesus excuses them from God's judgment and wrath. From the word of the Lord within, "They totter to the slaughter;" tottering, drunk in their lusts and pride from the intoxicating wine of the whore of Babylon, oblivious to their looming soul's destruction and painful, forced repentance after death.

Likewise salvation's exclusions are detailed in Galatians: "the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lack of restraint, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, arguments, jealousies, rage, selfishness, dissenting, divisions, envies, murders, drunkenness, partying, and the like; of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God." Gal 5:19-21. And Jesus in Mark, give us further exclusions of the contract: "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man." Mark 7:21-23. We have consumer protection laws to protect us from deceitful advertising of products, but we have no protection from those ministers who promise salvation and heaven, while ignoring the previously stated exclusions, and ridiculing the stated requirements of cleanliness, purity, and holiness — because the false ministers are not clean, pure, or holy.

It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness, which is idolatry.
